Last month, both Huawei and Leica made a public announcements that they have come together to enhance mobile photography. Apparently, Huawei’s upcoming flagship, P9, will be the first smartphone to feature a camera system which is co-developed with Leica.
This announcement was made by none other than Huawei’s own deputy chairman of the board – Mr Guo Ping. A press conference was called by the company and beside making the annual financial reports public, Mr Ping announced:
“We are going to launch our P9 flagship phone very soon and this is a product that we worked with Leica to produce.”
On the other hand, Steve Hemmerstoffer surfaced another image of the Huawei P9’s rear side. We already have seen numerous leaked pictures from this particular angle, however the ‘Leica’ and ‘Summarit’ badge have shown themselves for the first time. In addition to that, the aperture size, f/2.2, and focal length, 27mm, are also mentioned. Please have a look:
Lets have a look at the rumored specifications of the Huawei P9. The P9 will sport a 5.2″ 1080p display. Under the hood, the smartphone will host the Kirin 950 chipset. As far as the memory of the handset is concerned, 3GB of RAM (LPDDR4 1866MHz) and 32GB internal storage are being rumored. Note that this is special display RAM which allows static content on the screen to be rendered while using very little power. Apart from the 12MP dual camera setup at the back, a 5MP shooter will be available at the front for selfies. Furthermore, the rear camera will come with support for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The 6.4mm thick device will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery. Huawei P9 will feature pre-installed Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI. The Handset will feature dual-SIM and global LTE connectivity. Stay tuned for further updates.
